If you’ve been told you have two to four weeks to live, what would do you do?
My cousin told her daughter she wanted a lemon pie
so her whole family could eat together one more time.
What would you do?
I’d write all those letters I’ve put off.
I’d call my family and tell them I love them.
I’d sit outside, or watch the glories of spring through a window.
I’d listen to the birds chirp and the leaves rustle.
I’d bring back all the good memories and hold them close.
I’d banish every bad memory I have.
And I hope I’d think of the adventure I am heading toward.
No one knows what death is like. Soon I’d know.
